Department Of Homeland Security Urging Citizens To Prepare For Zombie Attack

No, it's not an early Halloween prank. The Associated Press is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a new "public health campaign" and has "urged citizens to prepare for a zombie apocalypse."

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have gotten into the act as well and have launched a series of seminars and social media campaigns on zombie attack survival.
A CDC pamphlet, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse" gives a history of zombies and checklists of all the survival items that citizens should have in stock in case of a zombie attack, is presently available online here.

What's gotten into DHS, FEMA and the CDC? Obviously, federal government officials do not recognize the existence of zombies, at least not officially, but DHS, FEMA and CDC are apparently using the zombie-angle as a lame marketing ploy.

According to the Associated Press, our disaster response agencies are under the impression that if citizens are "prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will help during a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack;" and undoubtedly, the approaching of the Halloween holiday and the recent public infatuation with all things undead, more than likely played a role in inspiring our government to push the marketing ploy.

Is this latest government idiocy effective marketing or a waste of our hard-earned tax dollars? Let us know your thoughts."

  1. CDC bureaucrats have gone daft to misappropriate government funds on the current zombie craze. How come they didn't publish a care book for your Cabbage Patch Doll? Or correct cleansing agents for your pet rock? Geesh! Everytime I see how the government squanders money I cringe as a slave to it's tax system. This madness has to stop,it's what happens when you don't have a federal budget for 99 years.

  2. Sorry to say it, but it's probably effective marketing. The American population is so infatuated with cell phones, videogames, movies, and other foolish entertainment that very few people actually will read messages about emergency preparedness. Our country is frighteningly ignorant and fully deserves whatever fate lies ahead!

  3. And the Dead in Christ will Rise!!!

  4. Aside from the military, is there ANY government endeavor that doesn't fit the description, "a waste of our hard-earned tax dollars?" It's so much a truism that your question is really rhetorical!

    DHS is so screwed up that I would almost certainly do the exact opposite of what they prescribe in any emergency...granted, I have a slight edge having been a first responder for 23 years.

    Keep the faith and keep up the good work! Oh, and remember a prayer for all those who perished on 9/11/2001
